Curro Jewel City
Curro Jewel City is an innovative, technologically-advanced high school that opened in January 2020, near the Maboneng Precinct, Johannesburg. Our modern, technology-rich school offers English-medium teaching and accommodates learners in Grades 8 in 2020, with higher grades phasing in annually. Our unique e-learning model focusing on 21st-century skills prepares learners for the fourth industrial revolution through a project-based learning programme that emphasises Science, Mathematics, and Technology.
What do we offer?
At Curro Jewel City, teaching takes place through leading e-learning tools and videos, with teachers and tutors providing one-on-one assistance as needed. By moving the teachers away from the whiteboard and into the classroom, learners can get more immediate and personal assistance to understand a particular concept before moving on.
With a great focus on 21st-century skills, we offer advanced Technology, Science, and Mathematics, as well as a coding and Robotics programme. Learners are prepared to write the NSC (National Senior Certificate) examinations at the end of Grade 12.
How do we use technology in the classroom?
As Curro Jewel City utilises the DigiEd curriculum approach, our teaching method centres around the use of technology. Learners watch instructional videos rather than read purely from textbooks, receive multimedia-based material, and have access to remote tutor assistance via the Internet.
Learners also get their own school email account to securely liaise with teachers and team members regarding projects.
